Real Estate Broker Continuing Education

Important Notice 

A bill has recently been introduced in the Colorado Legislature that would nullify the need for the Real Estate Broker “Transition Course”.  It is HB18-1227 (Real Estate Commission Flexibility in License Periods), and it can be found here for review (with amendments). The Division will keep you informed as this bill makes its way through the legislature.

For each three-year license cycle, all active real estate brokers must complete 24 hours of continuing education.

Three-Year License Cycle Continuing Education Requirements:

  • Twelve (12) of the 24 hours must be comprised of three (3) different versions of the four hour (4) Annual Commission Update Course.
  • The remaining twelve (12) hours can be any combination of elective credit hours approved by the Commission.
  • You must retain proof of completion of continuing education courses for a minimum of four years and provide proof of completion upon the Commission's request.

Inactive License Continuing Education Requirements

If your license has been inactive for longer than three (3) years/36 months, you MUST complete either:

  • The State portion of the Colorado Broker's Exam, or
  • 48 Hours in Colorado Contracts & Regulations and 24 hours in Real Estate Closings (for a total of 72 hours).
